Food Choices

    Fat-free and low-fat milk products are great. Look for fat-free or low-fat cheese, yogurt, and other dairy products. If can't drink milk, try soy drinks fortified with calcium and vitamin D. Red Meat, fish, chicken, beans, and peanuts are some very good sources of proteins to grow tall and healthy.
